About the Webinar: Concrete curing is the process by which hydraulic cementitious concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time. It is a result of the continued hydration of the cementitious materials and requires the presence of sufficient water and heat. This presentation will give a short overview of concrete curing. Different curing methods will be reviewed and their effect on desired concrete properties will be presented. Minimum curing requirements from ACI, AASHTO, and US DOTs will be discussed. Curing timing in relation to construction activities will be explained.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define curing and related terms,
  2. Recall different curing methods,
  3. Examine research findings on curing,
  4. Review minimum curing requirements from ACI, AASHTO, and state DOTs
  5. Explain curing timing in relation to construction activities
